Chesterton Windmill from the air
|Buy this picture|
black & white aerial photograph of Chesterton Windmill Warwickshire England UK. Grade I listed Chesterton Windmill was built in 1632 and is a one off design with only one similar Mill in Rhode Island USA built in a similar way. Also unusual is that the sails rotate counter clockwise whereas most windmills rotate clockwise. The mill was in regular use until 1910 and thereafter used occasionally for much of the 20th century. The mill was restored in 1971 and is now preserved and in the care of Warwickshire County Council.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
